    Possible new Bruce Wayne AE angle...

    I was going through the Mego stash looking for parts to put together a RC Batman for a potential customer. I found 2 heads that I thought were both RC Batman heads but when I put them side by side I noticed a few things:

    1) The one that I know is a RC Batman head, the one that is on the right side of the photo as you are looking at it on the screen, is smaller in height and size and is more solid than the one on the left. I've noticed this before with a Dick Grayson head and RM Robin head about 1 year ago.

    2) Also noticed that the one on the right isn't as squishy as the one on the left.

    3) The one on the left has a grayish dot, not blue, under it's left eye. This leads me to the new angle:

    When were the Alter Egos put out? If they were put out between the transition from Type 1 to type 2 it could explain the gray dot under the left eye and it could explain the squishyness of the head. The gray usually is found to exist with a majority of Type 2 heads. I've never personally seen a type 1 head go gray/zombie. It also can explain the fact that there are a whole lot of Type 2 Shazam heads with no copyright information on the backs of their necks (Peter Parker is basically a Type 2 Shazam head with more defined widows peak and blue eyes) Again, this is just my opinion...but I'd love to hear some others chime in on this. To all of the members that have AE's...I bet the heads on those figures are squishy.

    BTW, both of these heads have Copyright info on the backs of their necks...but I think the one on the left is a Bruce Wayne AE head. If I can I will put the heads on a Type 1 body and take pics to see if the head colors are truly different...The one on the left isn't mocha...but it is close:



    Here's the other pic of the Dick Grayson I had and posted in a thread:

    Hmmm. Interesting theory. And as you know, I’m in the market for a Bruce Wayne AE head. ��
    Fresh, not from concentrate.

    That is interesting - thus the mocha color variation that are not standard type 1 or type 2.

    I know this may be a bit out there too - but is it possible that Mocha color is a color shift that happened to these particular heads over time.

    I've had action jackson heads that have had grey spots like the one in your pic.
